    Restroom Procedures:

    • Only 1 person at a time may use the restroom.

    • You may leave your seat to go sign out but you must let me know you are leaving. Make sure I acknowledge your request.

    • Sign out on the paper located on the filing cabinet at the front of the room near the white board.

    • Note the time you are leaving and take the flip flop with you as your pass. (You must have the pass with you or it is not considered approved to leave)

    • Sign in when you return and note the time you returned.

    • If you are gone more than 20 minutes I consider this skipping, and you will be given a referral.

    • Restroom time is for the restroom only. Both the girls and the boys bathroom is just down the hall so you have no reason to be wandering the halls. 

    • Be mindful that others need to use the restroom pass so take no more than 10 minutes.

    Tardies:

    • If you are late to school you must go to attendance and login to the KIOSK. This will register that you are tardy. 

    • Your teacher may also put a tardy into the computer, so make sure you are on time.

    • If you have three tardies in the nine weeks you will be given a warning that the fourth tardy will result in a referral. You will receive ISS.

    • Let's be on time.

    Dismissal procedures:

    • I will let you know when it is time to stop working and to log off your computer. DO NOT Shut Down because students in the next classes will be using the computers.

    • DO NOT gather at the door. It is important to be clear of the door for safety reasons. When the bell rings you may quietly get up from your seat, push in your chair, then exit the classroom.

    ABout this class:

    • Let's go over the syllabus

    • My syllabus is online however, if you wish to have a paper copy I can print one out for you.

    • This is a technology class and 90% of what we do is on the computer. If you have problems and do not have a lot of experience on the computer, please let me know right away because I don't want you to fall behind.

    • This is a fast-paced course so if you find yourself falling behind please let me know so I can help you get caught up.

    How are you getting Home?

    • If you take the bus remember you must have your bus route slip that the bus driver or school personnel gave you. 

    • If you have a bus change bank or were a car rider this morning then you must have a bus slip to load the bus in the afternoon.

    • You have 5 minutes to get to your bus. Administrators will be available to assist you if you don't know where to go.
